the car is heavier than before, even heavier by 100kg to rival Vios.
Honda did best with the iDSI 2nd gen City with CVT. it has excellent FC of about 17-18km/L but of course, a proton wira 1.5 has more power but acceleration is nevertheless good by using CVT.
the ivtec version came later has better power at 110bhp while not sacrifisng much on FC (similar to all vios at 15-16km/L).
the new City goes more for style (16 inch rims, looks) but extra 120hp does nothing to iimprove FC especially in city driving.
the extra 100kg means at all time you are driving a Vios with 2 persons weighing 50kg each.
and this is the reason even though the current city has 10% more power than previous city and vios (old & new) but 0-100 accelerations is exactly same to Vios (manucfutrer's figure) because it is also 10% heavier.
